 Watch: Eve Visits The Breakfast Club / Talks Hiatus, New Album, Azealia Banks Turning Her Down, & More

‘She Bad Bad’ and now she’s back back! Rapstress Eve is gearing up for the release of her new album ‘Lip Lock’ (due May 14th) and is hitting the promo rounds early in support of the set.

The femcee, who now lives in London, stopped by The Breakfast Club on Power 105.1 New York for a super insightful chat.

Relaxed, yet poised, the former Ruff Ryder dished on her hiatus, comeback, being an independent artist, and much more. Perhaps most interesting, though, were her words on fellow femcees Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks – the latter of who she alludes turned down a collaboration request.

Peep the interview below…


There is a certain air of refreshing when seeing seasoned acts such as Eve do away with the media politics and tell it how they feel it. Indeed, without roasting anyone, the 34 year old came across classy, confident, and as an artist who clearly has more to give.

Needless to say, then, roll on May! We  can’t wait to get our ears “locked” on to her new material.

Your thoughts?

    Insulted Kim, turned down Eve, Nicki won’t work with her, Iggy won’t work with her, Angel Haze won’t work with her.

    I’d reall like to see who Azealia will collab with when that album drops.

    Oh nobody really…. Just Kanye West multi Grammy award winning rapper/producer and Lady Gaga. But who are they comparing to Angel, Iggy and Nicki right? Lol! GTFO. I love Eve though.

    Girl you tried. This b**** has been lying about that Kanye collabo since last year. Remember when she said he sent her beats and then she backtracked a couple months later saying it never happened? Remember when she said she flew out to Hawaii and recorded with him for Cruel Summer and was no where to be found on the album? The b**** is a liar. Has Kanye even mentioned her name yet?

    Who’s to say she’s lying?
    Artists always record a bunch of songs for an LP thats about to drop, some just don’t make it on the CD for the final product.

    mob: the feminization of men.....ewww Replied:

    I agree! I think she is to feat on Beyonce’s new CD so perhaps she will seek to have her feature on 1 of her tracks but other than that, I just don’t know?

    I did like the fact that she jumped in PEZ Hilton’s ass though LOL, I can’t lie! :-)

    @Slayty Perry
    So uninformed, darling! If you knew anything about anything, then you would know that a bunch of tracks didn’t make it on Cruel Summer, this said directly by Pusha T and Teyanna Taylor. Sit bee-itch. Also Banks never backtracked, are you making up s*** like Katy Parry’s made-up voice? And Kanye has mentioned her… and met her and dined with her. At his request she performed at his party. Not too mention the shout-out she got from Kim Kardashian. Again, sit bee-itch.

    Iggy GODzalea Replied:

    At least Katty Perry has a career. Where is Hopsin?

    The last 2 you mentioned are nobodies, so who cares?

    Viciousss Replied:

    At this point all she’s got left is nobodies, I’m gonna need her to mention someone who’s going to work with her and back it up with an actual single.

    Iggy GODzalea Replied:

    Death @ nobodies. Well that nobody beat her in the Battleship Battle of the musicians poll and beat her for the cover of XXL magazine. She also got to perform with a legend on the VH1 Divas show. Pretty good for a nobody

    PSA (FAF) Replied:

    Kanye just tweeted a link to her song, he already has a female in his camp — Teyana

    Eve, Lauryn Hill, Lil Kim and Missy Elliott are the only female rappers with a multi-platinum album and are also the only female rappers with grammies.

    Do you really think she would have a Grammy right now if it wasn’t for Pink, Xtina, Missy, & Maya?

    what type of lies lol…Pink Friday has sold more than Hardcore though…Lauryn Hill rapped her ONE album BUT her album was r&b/soul…Kim has 1/5 of a grammy but grammy none the less so i’ll give you that…Missy and Eve def had their success, absolutely correct on them

    Not true. Salt n’ Pepa’s “very necessary” album sold 5 mil in the US alone.

    They also have 4 Grammy’s , but I got your point.

    You tried it. You must be a late 90s or millennium baby. Eve was a crossover success. Just because she’s not commercial now doesn’t discredit anything she did before. You kids act like all stars don’t have a commercial expiration date. Take a nap with that weak shade!

    Eve needs to step up her promo and release a song that isn’t harsh on the ears if she wants to make a comeback. BTW where is Missy Elliot?? I haven’t heard from her since Black Girls Rock.

    I love Eve’s honesty when they were grilling her with questions about the Nicki & Minaj. Eve’s response to the questions about Nicki Minaj were the definition of Class, Honesty, Realness & Sisterhood. Eve also made a very valid point when it comes to their comparison, she said Me & Nicki are in two different lanes ( So their is no comparison when it comes to their music). I also applauded Eve when she said ” She could rock with some stuff like Girl On Fire, but not when some of her other material”, what she really said was ” She didn’t like Star Ship’s”. Coming from a Female Mc’s perspective that was Positive Critique, so her feelings towards Nicki are self explanatory. But I would like to have Nicki & Eve on the same record, it wold be dope..

    Yassssssssssss that’s my b**** Eve. This a good and honest interview. She was mature,grown and sexy, REAL,and humble. I’m so ready for EVE to f*** the game up again. Real hip hop. If anybody can c** back strong its her. Don’t believe her just watch. f*** azealia banks with her black crusty stanky p**** ass b**** for not workin with a legend. She gonna wish she did take ur offer when that wack ass flop debut album cums out. I love what eve said about the female rappers of how they should hold each other down they could do some damage. It will comeback to bite nicki and azealia in the ass. I mean look at foxy and khias careers now. Liplock2013 I’m ready and u haters betta get ready.
